YOU’LL BE SORRY by Josh Schneider
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 17, 2007

"Though even younger ones will reckon the unlikelihood of ever being in the same (so to speak) boat with Samantha, they may come away at least a little more convinced of the frequent connection between rash acts and unforeseen consequences. (Picture book. 5-7)"
Sandwiched between Schneider's stout denials that the episode is based on personal experiences is a puckish tale of impulsive sibling violence and remorse in a family of Kevin Henkes-like mice. Read full book review >

ORSON WELLES'S LAST MOVIE by Josh Karp
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: April 21, 2015

"Luckily, there's nothing unfinished in Karp's retelling. He follows every story, dollar and last legal battle in full detail. Whether the film sees a 2015 release on the anniversary of Welles' birth, as was speculated as of late last year, we at least have Karp to thank for the next best thing."
What became of The Other Side of the Wind, that crazy movie that took up the last 15 years of the life of Orson Welles (1915-1985)?Read full book review >
